Summary: Uninstalling executables created with --format-executable

Initial Comment:
Here's an example:

gem install --format-executable rake
==> Installs executable "rake18".

ln -s rake18 rake
==> This step is performed by most Linux distros.

gem uninstall rake
==> Asks whether to uninstall "rake", but not "rake18".

Message:
In fact, just add --format-executable to the uninstall command and the case is closed as those using this option most likely won't use it on a "per command" basis.
